Full Description
In the past it may have been possible to individually manage each data exchange between the various parties involved in a venture.  As the rate of digital data increases and the number of interested parties grows, a one-off approach for each data exchange becomes increasingly untenable.   This talk will discuss the expanding  use of industry standard formats and web services for integrating and managing the data flow between multiple parties in the digital oilfield. 
Additionally this talk will focus on enabling some of the first users of these standards within an organization, namely software developers.  Software developers need to incorporate these standards into applications before end users can make practical use of them.  However these standards are large and complex.  For a software developer new to these standards, working with them can be a daunting task. 
Recently ExxonMobil undertook an effort to produce an Energistics WITSML and PRODML Devkit.  This DevKit is a library designed to allow developers to read and write standards compliant data, but stay entirely in the .NET and Visual Studio environment while doing so.  In the spirit of increasing standards uptake ExxonMobil decided to release this DevKit to the open source community.
This talk will provide an overview of the DevKit, discuss its feedback and impact and, point to possible future directions.
